Details: Product Description The GAA's tradition is rooted in families. Since its foundation in 1884 many sets of brothers have battled with and against each other for the pride of parish and county. In games rich with sibling talent and ability, Donal Keenan offers a fascinating examination of some of the games' remarkable family relationships. Profiling some of Ireland's most famous hurling and football brothers, 'Brothers in Sport' provides an insight into the lives of these well-known sporting brothers. Including interviews with the Ó hAilpíns, the Earleys and the Canavans, as well as memories of past heroes like the Foleys and the Rackards, these profiles reflect the truiumphs and disappointments of sporting brothers from across the country throughout their careers. About the Author Donal Keenan comes from a famous GAA family. His father won All-Ireland medals with Roscommon and went on to become president of the GAA in the 1970s. Keenan has been writing on Gaelic games for the past 20 years, first with the Irish Independent and the Sunday Times and he currently writes for The Irish Mail on Sunday.
